To be a trusted vehicle for positive change, promoting and advancing the South African Constitution and other democratic processes by:
Challenging the taxation policy and the regulatory environment (as a whole or part), as and when deemed as being irrational, unfit or ineffective for their intended purpose
Questioning and challenging the squandering, maladministration and corrupt use of taxes, using our clear and effective methodology,
and then to hold those responsible for the maladministration and / or corruption, to account for their behaviour and actions.
We are apolitical and rely on funding from the public, business and other donor institutions, to do our work of investigation, research, communication, empowerment and litigation.
OUR MESSAGE TO GOVERNMENT
We are not your enemy. Please don’t treat your critics with disdain. Try instead to walk with us and your people. We simply desire to live in a corrupt free and efficiently managed country. We will not go away!
